Re: ThinkPad W530 with Windows 7 x64 Pro BSOD when connecting to projector

2013-08-19, 6:45 AM
Hi all,

Just to add to post, our teams are requesting some information. They would like to know, does the BSOD occur also with standard Monitor connected with the same cable, or is it related only to the Projector device? How long is the VGA cable?

Hope to hear back,

Regards

Hi,

 

I got the beta driver and it fixes the problem!

 

Bluescreen comes only on projector not normal vga monitor.

VGA Cable length was over 5 meters when i tested it with projector. But after driver update it works with same cable just fine.

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

Hi,

Any news about the official release? I have BS with and without discrete mode when plugging in projector cable. But as mentioned only with discrete mode mirroring to projector is possible. Extremly disappointing because you never know when it happens. On my W530 it is not depending if there was standby before or not. But if you are standing in front of important customers it will happen- definitely. Wating for the fix.

Hi Z1013,

I was just wondering if you've tried these drivers from the below link?

Hello,

I tried it and it seems to work.

Thank you.

If the problem occurs with the new driver as well I will inform you.

 

Best regards

I have tried the driver you just posted a link to and the computer no longer blue screens, however, I can only get the projector image to show in black and white.  I have a few w530's that are having the same issue.  Duplicating the screen doesn't always work either.  Sometimes the projector doesn't receive a signal or loses the signal while connected.  Let us know if a newer driver comes out that 100% fixes the issue.

Just got a brand new W530. Great, but it also crashes when I attach an external monitor. Newest NVIDIA driver installed on windows 7 64-bit. Installed latest BIOS. Still and issue. Please - any news or fix here?
